We broke news in a report in January that there would be Plush Transformers released. We also had the first image of plush Optimus Prime. Now both Sledgehama of Transformersnewzealand.com and Starscream NZ of TFW2005 have confirmed the release of the Optimus Prime plush figure as well as a G1 Bumblebee plush figure. They were found at a Farmers store for $19.95. To see images of both plushies click here.

Sweet, gonna go pick up Slumblebee for the wife tomorrow.
$20 NZ is generally about 10-12 US although the NZ dollar is unusally strong at the moment making it closer to $14US.

Same reason Optimus Prime is called "Softimus Prime". To appeal to parents that want to buy a stuffed cuddly something for an infant.

Here's the old trademarked names from a while back

HAS82479 TRANFORMERS PLUSH ASST 6-53569-23992-5 82199 TRA MOVIE PLUSH SOFTIMUS PRIME
6-53569-23990-12200 TRA MOVIE PLUSH SLUMBLEBEE 6-53569-23991-8

I for one think these things are a stroke of genius. They look good to boot.

I didn't know that they were given silly names like that. My bad.

Any shots of them in altmode? I'd like to see what they look like.

If I were trying to pick up a female transfan, I'd definitely buy her one of these. I hope they make a Grimlock too. Heh heh, I'd love a cuddly Grimlock. Ah, irony!
